{Cheats Guide to Christmas} 10 products you need to pop on your grocery list!


This post is a collaboration with Woolworths

Dreaming of an easy Christmas? Me too! Don’t stress, I have you covered! I’ve put together a list of products that go together perfectly to make Christmas this year a breeze. Everything listed below is easy to pick up in a single Woolies shop and requires little prep (hello easy Christmas prep).

Award-winning half leg ham + NEW ready-made ham glaze = Amazing foolproof glazed ham!

I make a glazed ham each year and normally make my own glaze, but as soon as I spotted these pre-made ones at Woolies for only $4 each, I knew I had to try them. There are 3 different flavours to pick from: Spiced Apple, Golden Maple and Sweet Cherry. I decided to go with the sweet cherry and it was thick, sweet and caramelised perfectly on top of the ham. These pre-made glazes are a perfect shortcut if you are strapped for time this festive season!

Boneless Hot Roast Turkey + Gravy = The easiest main you’ll serve this Christmas!

Another thing I purchase each year is a frozen Ready To Roast Turkey Breast, so I was happy to find Woolies has one available with lemon and herb stuffing for only $17.00. Team it up with some Traditional Gravy and roast vegetables and you’ll have a family-friendly meal on the table in no time.

Cocktail Prawns + Seafood sauce = Prawn Cocktail

What’s a summer Christmas feast without some prawn cocktails to serve! These will literally take you 2 minutes to whip up and they will be a real winner.

Gold Spiced Gingerbread Pudding + Vanilla Custard = The perfect treat after a Christmas feast!

I won’t lie, I basically ate this whole pudding after I took the picture (can I call that taste testing?). Everything you need is in the box, including gold lustre butterscotch sauce and star sprinkles. You can find a few different pudding flavours in the Gold range including Pineapple & Rum, Jewelled Blond Cherry and Plum & Port.

Puff Pastry Biscuits + Milk = Santa sorted for his Christmas Eve present drop!

These biscuits have a sweet, flaky texture and come in super cute Christmas tree shapes. Pop a few out for Santa (AKA you) after he drops off the presents along with a glass of milk.

Brandy Snaps + Thickened Cream = 2-minute dessert!

I’ll admit it and say that I hadn’t tried Brandy Snaps before and I’ve totally been missing out. These were simple to put together and, if you want to make it even easier, you could use the cream in a can that’s ready to go.

Meringue Nests + Passionfruit Pulp + Cream = A sweet dessert everyone will want to try!

If you’re looking for an easy dessert for Christmas, you just found it! These Meringue Nests are super easy to make and will only take you 2 minutes to put together. You could mix it up and add some fresh fruit with the passionfruit pulp or some chocolate chips

Frozen Lime Slices + Sparkling Mineral Water = Lime and soda in seconds!

You’ll never run out of limes again with these frozen limes Woolworths has for just $4! Team them up with some soda water and ice in a nice glass – you’ll have lime and soda in seconds.

Fruit Mince Pies +  Thickened Cream = Traditional Christmas favourite!

Fruit Mince Pies are a staple in my house over Christmas and this year is no exception! They are perfect teamed up with some whipped cream.

Gingerbread House Kit + Decorating = Family Fun!

My kids love making their yearly gingerbread house and they were super excited when I let them make this one on December 1st. It didn’t last long enough to snap a pic, though! The Woolies Gingerbread House Kit includes everything you need, including the icing and lollies to decorate.



Have you tried any of these products? Let me know when you do! The ham glaze and frozen lime slices are a game changer for me.
